Leakage Reduction


  • Decommissioning and replacing 1057 meters of old and damaged cast iron mains
  • Decommissioning and replacing 900 meters of asbestos cement water mains
  • Existing pipes will be replaced with new modern polyethylene plastic pipes
  • The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the street/road to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the customer’s water supply

Where will works take place

  • The R572/R571 from Dinish Island Bridge to Chapel Lane
  • The L-4917 on the east side of the square
  • The west side of the square
  • A section along the L-4717


  • A reliable water supply – replacing the ageing water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers and local businesses in the area
  • Improved water quality – removing existing old cast iron and potentially lead from the public water network and replacing them with new pipes will reduce the risk of contamination
  • Reduced leaks – replacing the old water mains and service connections will eliminate existing leaks and reduce the amount of clean drinking water lost into the ground
  • Improved operation and maintenance – these works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future
